Confused about hyperfocal distance - measured from where?

Hi. I'm a little confused about where hyperfocal distance is measured from.

If for example, you find that your hyperfocal distance is 7 feet, does this mean 7 feet straight in front of your feet? Or does it mean 7 feet from the lens (focal plane of the sensor), which means you are actually measuring from the diagonal, instead of 7 feet from your toes?

Thanks.
